“Think of some of the most successful people you know. Are they the smartest people you’ve ever met? The wealthiest? Chances are, they’re not – but they are the most motivated to succeed. The one common denominator of all successful people is their hunger to push through their fears. When you have enough hunger, you can easily learn how to self-motivate to meet the goals you’ve set your mind and focus on.” Tony Robbins
